About Paul:

Trained as an interdisciplinary developmentalist, receiving my Ph.D. in Behavioral Sciences, Committee on Human Development at the University of Chicago, IL, but also spending a lot of time in the university's philosophy department, has resulted in my currently holding appointments in the departments of psychology and philosophy at Bethel College. This dual appointment has some of its foundation in a dissertation focused on the structure and function of behavioral interpretation. I have been teaching since 1979, in departments of psychology, education, and sociology, at different colleges and universities in the Chicago area, and full-time at Bethel College, North Newton, KS since 1988, primarily in the psychology department. I have also been doing research on Schizophrenia and Mind since Summer, 1995; I and my students have made 4 presentations of this research to the International Congress on Schizophrenia Research at the 2011 and 2013 meetings. Part of my abiding interest in the disease of schizophrenia has its basis in my experience as a helping professional at two different agencies, one in Kenosha, Wisconsin, for about 3 years in the early 70's, and the other in Chicago IL, in the late 70's, early 80's. My experience at the latter agency especially piqued my interest in the severe and persistent mental illnesses, e.g., Schizophrenia, Bi-polar, Major Depressive Disorder, and Borderline Personality Disorder. This has naturally led to my becoming increasing involved in the local NAMI organization (Mid-Kansas NAMI) and helping to organize a NAMI Chapter on the Bethel College campus. I also have interest in researching the intersections between psychology and religion, and philosophy and religion, both in terms of theory and empirical research.
